Hey anyone who reads, I don't have Facebook anymore and MySpace is probably more dead than this site so I'll come here to vent. Besides, I like it here. RvB = The OG site for having a blog. :)
I'm going to bitch about Ghost Adventures. If you've never seen the show, here's a link of one of the more popular clips from one of the episodes. Go ahead and watch regardless, because I'm going to bitch about the clip on top of the show itself.
First and foremost, the guys hosting the show are obnoxious as hell. The "main character", I guess you could say, (Zak Bagans) is clearly a total douche. He's got one of the loudest voices ever and he is the stereotypical buff, jock, asshole that everyone hated in high school. Another thing about these dipshits, they're not professionals in the "science" of the paranormal or unexplained phenomena. They're amature filmmakers trying to start up a living.
Onto the general shittyness of the show itself. Let's start at the beginning...literally, the intro to the show. Zak starts off the intro saying, with such an intense voice, "I never believed in ghosts...UNTIL I CAME FACE TO FACE WITH ONE!" Fucking. Bullshit. Face to face with a ghost, huh? Yeah, that's only slightly on the side of crazy. The way this guy acts, he was probably fucked up on X one night and thought some random homeless guy was a ghost.
Onto the meat of the bullshit. The "entertainment" itself. Here's the theme of every episode:
Find an old ass building where some nutty fuckin' old people have been complaining about spirits and entities for decades. Grab some stupid looking, fancy-ass equipment. And lastly, lock yourselves in the building for the night, as if locked doors would prevent you from leaving the building if something went drastically wrong.
Pretty much the beef I have with this show is that these retards, more-so Zak than the others, starts yelling, or talking loudly (I can never tell with this faggot), at these ghosts and they apparently respond many times throughout the night. Every time they stay somewhere. Every. Time. This is how 90% of the video segments go:
Zak: Who's there? Say something to us! Come and get me!
*random thumping or creaking noise*
All: Did you guys hear that? Yeah, I heard that! It said "hate"!
Okay, that's not exact. It's a pretty accurate portrayal of the genius behind this show, though. They yell at the ghosts, the ghosts "respond" with a random word or two and they act freaked out. Then, a bit later, one of them either acts partially possessed or they act like some piece of equipment moved itself when they weren't around.
Fuck, dude. The house I live in isn't even super old and it makes some crazy, weird-ass noises every single day and every single night. You wander your ass into a 100+ year old, vacant, half destroyed building and it's bound to make some crazy ass noises over the course of the night. Them, being retards, hear the building making noises...in the middle of the night...in the dark and they start freaking out and interpreting these noises as voices or other sorts of paranormal activity.
What really grinds my gears about this garbage is that there's literally been a marathon of this bullshit on Travel Channel since last night. I can't believe I'm missing out on Man v. Food greatness for this sorry excuse for entertainment. The fact that they're running a marathon means there are seriously avid fans of this trash.
It's literally shit like this that's ruining television and helping bruise Americans' reputation with other countries and our overall intellect as a country. I felt like I was becoming less intelligent across the two episodes I watched last night and the two minute clip on YouTube.
Do me a favor. If you watch this show, stop. If you're addicted to it, destroy your TV. Thanks.

Love you all. Haven't talked to any of you forever.
Not a lot's changed.
Same girlfriend for 2 years and 3 months now.
Same job for 5 years and 2 months. Working my way up the McCorporate ladder, woo!
Still big on Slipknot and Atreyu. Between the Buried and Me are musical gods. Listen to Colors, it will change your life.

Scott's dog is yelling at me so I'll make this short and sweet.
Things are going good. I'm getting a house with Scott and Cory from work and we're moving in on the first of march, which is also Aaron's first day back in town. Lotsa work, but things are going really well there so it's cool. I'm suspended from college because I failed because I'm lazy, but that's my own fault.
I have Xbox Live now. My gamertag is JeffreyN0thing. I mostly only play Halo 2, but a lil bit of Madden and Gears of War. Hope you're all doing great. Catch you guys later.

I know I haven't been on like at all...and this is the reason why. I'll go over my daily routine.
7:00 AM - Wake up and start getting ready
8:00 AM - 12:00 PM - School time
12:00 PM - 1:00 or 2:00 PM - Run errands (homework, studying, bank, etc.) and lunch
1:00 PM or 2:00 PM - Work. Every-fucking-day.
I'm supposed to be cut down to 20 or less hours a week so school/work combos don't become too stressful. Guess what? I'm at somwhere around 45 hours this week? How does this shit happen? It's okay, not like I failed my calc exam that I had yesterday because I had to work about ten hours on Monday. Oh, wait, I did. It's cool. I don't need an education or a good job in the future, I'll just stay at McDonald's the rest of my life. Assholes. I foresee me making a stop at the doctor's tomorrow in order to get a note saying I can't work as much...as in...this weekend...then my hours are starting to be cut down a bit for next week...as in like...32 hours...still too much, but far better than 45.
And that, kids, has been my life. Straight up. Sucks ass.
EDIT - By the way, if no one knows what's going on in football. The Bears rule. That's all you really need to know.

For those of you who actually have me on MySpace and read my blogs, some of this may or may not be a bit of a repeat from my last blog.
I'm going to start by saying how much I love the band All That Remains. If you're into metalcore, you're going to like their newest CD The Fall of Ideals. It's pretty much amazing. So buy it. Now.
In other music news, I'm going to Milwaukee on October 13th to see It Dies Today play with Silverstein and Aiden...IDT is the only one that I'm really all that excited for. Then on November 5th I'm seeing Atreyu for the third time...but they're playing with From First to Last, Everytime I Die and Chiodos...which, if you've never listened to any of them, are complete bullshit...well...to me anyways. Mushroomhead's new CD, Savior Sorrow, comes out a week from this Tuesday and Ludacris' new one comes out a week after that. New Slipknot DVD in October. I think that covers all of it.
Other considerably important news in my life...I started school again on this past Tuesday. Oh how I loathe school. I'd love Calc if it wasn't at fuckin' 8 AM five days a week. After a summer of getting up at like 1 or 2 in the afternoon, waking up at 7 AM is a complete and total drag on my day. In order to be able to afford school, I'm working full-time at McDonald's during school so I'm pretty much drained all the time now. It's awesome. Not. God, I hate school.
Possibly the most important news from over the past few months of my life, I broke up with my girlfriend like...a month ago...ish. She was probably the best thing that ever happened to me and I went and broke up with her because someone else liked me who is by far one of the most gorgeous people I've ever met. I'm shallow, I know. So now my ex hates me because apparently I'm treating her like she's five, I feel like shit because I still don't know exactly what's going on with the other girl, she might be avoiding my calls and I have the whole school/work thing on top of all of it. I haven't been sleeping. Between thinking, school and work, I just don't have the time for it. I've started drinking again...by drinking, I mean Mountain Dew...which I hate because it's awful for me. You all know I don't drink alcohol. Lol.
All in all, my summer was dull as hell and now that school's up and running, I'm exhausted 24/7 and I don't know what to think about the love life. It's pretty much the worst possible timing, but Murphy's Law pretty much rules my life, bitches.
Well, that's my update. Catch you kids later.

So I was actually online the other night too, but I planned on leaving almost all of you individual comments to check in and see how all of you were doing. Sadly, my internet or RvB kept shitting out. Either way, no comments got posted. Icky, right? So this is the part where I ask you all how things have been going while I've been away.
For me, things have been going good. Some difficulties lately, but they're no one's fault but mine so I guess I can't complain too much. School starts up again in a week or two. I'm not exactly excited for that. Currently I pretty much work and that's it. Seriously. I work all the f-ing time. I have to make up for the shitty pay somehow.
Alright, I'm gonna end it here. Peace.

Our kitty died. I'd normally be pretty sad about it seeing as she's been in the family, like, longer than I have been, but I'm honestly surprised she made it this long. She was like 20...yes, my cat was nearly old enough to legally drink...well, that is, if cats can ever legally drink. So R.I.P. kitty. Even if you were old, smelly and icky by the time you died, we all loved you.

Heck yeah it has. I'm pretty much never online. I work...a lot...and when I'm not working, I'm sleeping, in Oconto Falls or playing some form of console game. I'd say that I'm going to get around to my watchlist, but I probably won't be getting around to most of it due to my parents switching to ultra-gay People PC...quite possibly the cheapest/worst ISP ever created. Literally, if we went back to Earthlink, I'd be online a whole lot more often.
Not a whole lot has been happening. I love my life, but things have been happening in other people's lives that have been pretty much been making me want to fucking shank some kids. So if I got the chance to slap a couple kids, shank a few others and just straight up blast the occasional McDonald's customer, all would be well.
School's done and I did a helluva lot better this semester than I did the previous one...as in after one more semester I'll probably have dug myself out of my academic probation. Thank goodness.
I bought two CDs today. Firstly I bought Children of Bodom's "Are You Dead Yet?" and it's been kicking my ass most of the night. I also picked up Caliban's "The Undying Darkness" which I've only listened to for like 20 minutes or so...but it's sounding pretty badass as well.
In other news, I'm golfing in like....9 hours and then I work after that so I'm gonna go ahead and catch up on some sleep.
P.S. - If you want the epitome of the term "fucking whore" and you have some free time on your hands, check out my ex's MySpace and read her two or three newest blogs. The words that pop into my head are immature, whore and drunk. See for yourself.

I'm slowly getting through my watchlist. Should be able to finish it up tomorrow.
Life hasn't really had anything new in it the past couple weeks. Hectic with all the school and work, but I like it because it keeps me busy so I'm not just sitting around.
Prom was this past weekend. I actually had a really good time this time around as opposed to my first time when it just kind of sucked.
Also, the game Guitar Hero rules. It's like DDR for lazy people. No joke. Me and my friends are splitting the cost of the game and probably another controller for it this weekend. Great times shall follow.
I have a book report due today. Yesterday I didn't even have the book picked and the report is already completely done. How is that possible? A friend and about $30 dollars out of my wallet. Oh yes. I love money.
Class now. Trout.
